Virginia holds off Duke in hectic ACC showdown

Throwback Thursday: Sean Elliott

The top two teams in the ACC squared off in a back-and-forth defensive showdown, and in the end a crucial three-pointer and mistake-free basketball down the stretch lifted No. 2 Virginia to a 65-63 win over No. 4 Duke.

The Blue Devils shot a great 49 percent from the field against one of the country's best defenses, and freshman sensation Marvin Bagley III went for 30 points and 14 rebounds, but in the end UVA's team game (four players scored in double digits) proved too much for Duke, which couldn't find enough clutch points when it needed them the most.
